Black Tea: loose leaf

canton english breakfast

Expertly blended in the UK by Canton

An exceptional English Breakfast blend with high-grade leaves from the best black tea growing regions in the world. Kenya gives it a rich golden hue, Rwanda offers a velvety smooth texture, Assam adds maltiness, and Yunnan brings a dark cocoa flavour. It’s big, bright and beautifully full-bodied. If you’re adding milk, steep for longer.

The tea in the gift box is sealed in a clear compostable 'natureflex' bag, then packed in Canton's hinged-lid, airtight, white tin caddy and slipped inside a smart, black card gift box. The caddy is designed to keep. Use it to store high grade tea leaves bought in larger refill packs.

Taste & aroma

The assam adds a maltiness and the Rwandan tea makes the blend rich and smooth. Kenyan leaves have depth to them while yunnan Chinese black tea weaves in a really unique dark cocoa flavour and all these elements come together beautifully with hints of malt and fig too.


Infusion guidelines

For the ideal cup of Canton English Breakfast, steep 4g of loose leaf in 250ml of 95°C water for four minutes if you’re taking it with milk, and two minutes if you’re taking it black.
